In one Erykah Badu’s collab songs with Madlib called “The Healer” she calls out many of the different names of God:
“Humdi Lila Allah Jehova
Yahweh Dios Ma’ad Jah”
You may or may not have gotten that these are all different names of The One, The Almighty, The Gracious Lord, Our Heavenly Spirit….God.
I looked up most of these, but I’m unsure still about a few. Voila:
Humdi lilla- not quite sure but I read that “al Hamdi lullah” means “Thanks be to God”,
lilla is like Allah- Humdi Lila might be similar to the Muslim greeting: “Asalaam alaikum”
Allah is the standard Arabic word for God
Jehovah is the English reading and pronunciation of the Hebrew name for God
Yahweh is also an English version of a Hebrew name for God
Dios is Spanish for God
Ma’ad is probably the Egyptian goddess Maat or Mayet who represents “the Ancient Egyptian concept of truth, order—law, morality, and justice” (from wikipedia)
Jah is a name commonly used for God by Rastafarians (also derived from the Hebrew)
It goes on to talk about music and hip-hop and Badu talks about how it’s bigger than a lot of things. I think she is relating hip-hop to God and making a commentary on organized religion. But I don’t want to get into the politics of interpretation, thank you.
